Ingredients

Crust

  • 1 cup granola of choice
  • 1 tbsp melted coconut oil
  • pinch sea salt, optional
  • 1 tbsp unsweetened almond butter or cashew butter

Filling

  • 1 14-oz can coconut milk, chilled overnight
  • 3⁄4 cup nondairy cream cheese
  • 4 tsp organic evaporated cane juice (aka organic sugar)
  • 2 cups strawberries, quartered
  • mint leaves, for garnish

Preparation

  1. Prepare crust: In a food processor, pulse granola with coconut oil and salt (if using) until coarse crumbs form; add almond butter and pulse until just combined. Divide and press into the bottoms of 4 1-cup ramekins or 6 1⁄2-cup ramekins. Freeze until firm, about 10 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, prepare filling: Open can of coconut without shaking. Scrape top of solid coconut into a cold mixing bowl (you should have about 3⁄4 cup), and reserve liquid for future use (try it in soups and smoothies). Using a hand mixer on medium, beat coconut solids until fluffy, about 2 minutes. Fold in cream cheese and cane sugar.
  3. Spoon cheesecake mixture over granola base, dividing evenly, and top with strawberries. Garnish with mint leaves. (Make ahead: Make granola base and cheesecake mixture up to 2 days ahead. Assemble and top with strawberries just before serving.)
